The cost to add soffit vents to your eaves varies depending on the type of house and roof you have. Plus, how many vents need to be installed.
If there are any difficulties with access, this can potentially increase the price. You may also pay more if you’re installing other types of roof or ridge vents along with your soffit vents.
On average, the cost to install soffit vents is around £200 to £250. This is for around 20 eave vents installed around your property.
Soffit vent replacement cost
If you already have eaves vents installed but they’re in need of replacement, it’s time to bring in the professionals.
The good news is that it should be a little cheaper to have replacement vents fitted, rather than brand new ones. This is because there’s no need to create new openings in the soffits to install the vents – you only need to remove the old vents, and supply and fit replacement vents.
This could make the price closer to £200, although it could even be less.

It’s always recommended to use an experienced installer for this kind of job. Not only does it involve working at height, which can be dangerous, but you’ll need to get a professional fit to make sure your vents work efficiently.
